Paul Weller's Live From Jodrell Bank, Cheshire gig tonight (June 24) has been cancelled due to recent adverse weather conditions.

The Modfather was expected to play the show at the observatory, which houses the third largest telescope in the world, tonight but organisers have been forced to cancel. The heavy rainfall over recent days had made the site unsafe to the public and, after conducting a site survey with a health and safety adviser, the show was deemed unfit to go ahead as planned.

In a statement, event director Jon Drape said: "Due to a month's rainfall in 24 hours across the North West the site is now unfit to accommodate the show. Despite the best efforts of our site crew and subcontractors overnight the main event arena and car parks we are unable to deliver the concert safely."

The promoters have promised that those with tickets for today's cancelled Paul Weller gig will receive a "full face value refund for any tickets purchased", and they have advised that refunds will be issued automatically in the coming days.

Ticket holders have been asked to email all enquiries to weller@livefromjodrellbank.com and not contact the Jodrell Bank visitors centre. See Jodrellbanklive.co.uk for more details
